Or should we just chuck them away when no-ones looking. DS is very attached to some nasty smelling ducks.

hows about go by sparkly new ones and while he is thrilled about them chuck the old ones away.

I have had to do that on many occasion

Gloves and a bucket (or very large bowl) of Miltons. Squeeze the toys so that they are full of the solution - make sure to leave no air bubbles - and let them soak overnight or longer until the black gunk disappears. Squeeze out and refill them in a bucket of fresh water to rinse, squeeze out again, then back in the bathtub.

Only way to slow down the yuckification is not to use anything in the bath other than water, but even then things do gunk up eventually.

Prevent the mould by making sure the toys are dry.

Either towel dry them, or spread them out to let them dry naturally, and open the window to get good ventilation.
